Beautiful machine. Best sharpening machine I have ever used. I use this machine to sharpen my woodturning tools, Knives and anything I can find to sharpen. The edge stays sharper longer and the tool last longer. Thanks.
Wow, what a great purchase experience I've just had with my T-7. Everything arrived perfectly on-time (no backorders). The documentation is first-class and 100% accurate to the machine and accessories which I purchased. Everything about the T-7 and the jigs reflects innovative engineering and quality. I was up and sharpening in no time. Sharpening my first gouge with the SVD-185 jig was nothing short of magical! Congratulations on a fine system - the dollar amount of the investment I made 2 weeks ago is already forgotten. What a pleasure the T-7 is to use.
I thought I was sharp but I am in a new world of sharp now, thanks.
Wow, what a machine it's fantastic. At last in a society and age full of over hyped products and marketing "creativeness" I've finally found something that really can deliver on it's promises. A considerable investment for me, but worth every penny. It'll last me out I'm sure, and at 47 I'm not that old (at least I don't think so).
Brilliant in every way - design, manufacture, performance, packaging, literature, etc. If other manufacturers could perform like Tormek, my life would be a whole lot easier.
The finest sharpener available. I'm proud to finally own one.
I would have given up woodturning had it not been for this system.
I am very impressed with this machine! Not too long ago I spent 2 hours filing and honing a plane blade, just to find out it still had a nick in it. That was when I decided to purchase a wet grinder. I looked at the the lower cost copies, but didn't feel that the quality was there. I feel this is another case of you get what you pay for. I am glad I went with the Tormek!
It is fair to say that it has been a great success. And I would recommend it to anyone who has an interest in woodworking.
Awesome machine. My wife hasn't cut herself since I started using the T-3. Less effort to cut and the blade stays sharper longer than before. Easy to use and works better than I expected. All our friends now bring their knives over every time they visit. I could not be happier and look forward to buying a T-7 when the budget will allow. Thank You for exceeding my expectations.
Absolutely awesome machine, I looked at other similar sharpening systems, and they did not compare to the Tormek!! I love it.
Great machine! Far better than nearest competion and worth the price.
I LOVE my Tormek!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Excellent product. Exceeds all of my sharpening needs. I am very satisfied with it.
This machine is outstanding, never have I had such a surgical edge to my chisels and plane irons and they seem to keep their edge for longer! BRILLIANT!!
I love my Tormek! The bevels are beautiful, perfect and easy to restore. Using a Tormek sharpened edge for turning makes a profound difference to technique, speed and finish. The best innovation to woodturning since high speed steel. Thanks.
Love it. Truly the best sharpening tool on the market.
Even though I have been a professional carpenter all my working life (40 years) I have never been able to sharpen my chisels and plane blades as sharp as I now can with my Tormek.
The best sharpening system I've ever used, very happy. Thanx.
This is the finest sharpener I have ever witnessed or used in my life. Thanks Tormek!!!
Your machine is the Holy Grail. What else can I say.
A Tormek is a "must" for anyone involved in woodwork, professional or home craftsman alike. Brilliant machine.
I am so impressed that I may open a sharpening service in a few years when I retire. Thank you.
For the first time in my life I have sharpened knives, axes and pruning tools to perfection. It's incredible!!!!
Thanks for making this love box of a machine.
The best, most convenient, consistent and reliable sharpening system I've ever used.
Excellent machine, easy to use, not dangerous, works very fast, sturdy, and is easy to maintain in perfect condition. Extremely versatile, ingenious and simple at the same time.
I am your biggest fan. There is simply no better machine than a Tormek.
Pretoria, South Africa
Beautiful machine. Works great. Proud to be a Tormek owner.
I'm a carpenter & joiner for 47 years and i'm very impressed by this machine.
A first class product.
Excellent machine. Have used it since 2000 and it is a work horse.
Absolutely amazing, well worth the money and I would recommend it to anyone considering purchasing a sharpening system. Thank you.
The machine is exactly what I expected and more. It get my tools razor sharp every time and with little effort. Thanks for a great machine.
I was not sure I could reproduce the results I saw at the woodworking show. However, my first attempts produced amazingly sharp edges!
I have many tools for many trades but I can honestly say that I can't remember a tool that I have been more pleased with. It solves one of the biggest problems that a craftsman deals with.
Great Machine. Cut my fingers twice on the knives not being used to how sharp they were.
My son and also a friend have a similar machine and they both consider that it is a tool that is absolutely essential. I entirely agree and don't know how I managed for 80 years cabinet making and wood turning without it!
The best sharpening system that I have. I no longer use up valuable steel by grinding it away on a regular grinder. The woodturning tools remain sharper longer.
Cascades, South Africa
This tool has become the number one way we teach grinding.
Great tool, so easy to handle, complete with well presented instruction book. Every professional and home handy person using wood working tools should have a Tormek system.
Excellent. After a life of sharpening workshop tools in educational establishments, I now have a system that works better for me.
I LOVE IT. It is so easy to use and so fast. It’s a COOL TOOL (figuratively and literally).
I am a qualified carpenter, your grinder has saved me hours of sharpening time. Thank you for a great product.

The machine has operated flawlessly and I am extremely pleased. Would recommend to anyone as the finest sharpening tool on the market.
Love the machine. I can't believe how sharp my tools are.
Having lots of fun. Love it! I love High quality long lasting good products like this!!!!
Had machine best part of 10 yrs. Still does the job it's designed for. No complaints what so ever.
Melton Mowbray, UK
Tormek is the state of the art technology for small craftsman like myself to achieve professionally sharpened hand plane blades and chisels.
The best sharpening system i have seen and used. I can't wait to collect more jigs and acsessories to open up a world of fine precision sharpening. Thank you for a great time and effort saving machine.
Market Rasen, UK
Until I purchased the T-7, I disliked sharpening tools. It is no longer a chore. I look forward to it.
Absolutely delighted with the machine, my tools are like new again. Wish I had done this years ago.
Best sharpening machine I have ever worked with in 50 years.
It's a great product and would recommend it to anyone in need of a sharpening system. I've never in my 20 years of career have had so sharp chisels and carving tools.
The best tool I have ever bought, I dont know how I have ever gone without one.
I have used this device with several attachments for about 8 hours now and get faster sharper results. It's a simple but sophisticated product. It's likely the last sharpening machine I will ever buy.
I have been thinking about buying a Tormek for at least 15 yrs. I have tried many other machines, over the years, because I thought Tormek cost to much. All the money I spent, I could have bought 3 Tormeks, and still had money left! I just bought the Tormek Ultimate Bundle. What A machine.
So far I "LOVE IT"!!!! I just need more things to sharpen. Everything that can be sharpen in my home and shop is sharp, and I have started on my neighbors knives. I love it. Thank You.
Thank you for making this sharpening system available to the market. I appreciate your attention to details in crafting this machine. I look forward to using this system in my work.
I wish hadn't sort of inherited water-cooled slow speed grinder; I would love to have one of your machines. As it is, I use several of your jigs, wheels, honing compound, and several other products and have ALWAYS been impressed with the quality and craftsmanship. Great Job!! When my current system finally dies, I'm buying a Tormek!!!
This machine is fantastic, a real plesure to use. My tools have never been so sharp. After sharpening our kitchen knives my wife asked me to blunt them a bit claiming they were too sharp!!! That good. Many Thanks for a really well built, heavy duty machine.
The supplying of a packet of finger plasters with the machine sums it up better than I ever could.
What a beautiful machine! I wish I would have know about you years ago. Thank You!
My wife was concerned when I told her of the supply of bandage's but it was a potent reminder these tools are SHARP.
Thanks for the certificate, I am extremely pleased with my T-7, its the best tool I have bought in years, I was having terrible difficulty getting the finger nail profile on my detail gouges for woodturning, with your machine its a snip, perfect every time, easy and repeatable, Well done. I have sharpened all my chisels and now I can use them without a mallet!! It's absolutely fantastic.
It is so good to actually enjoy sharpening, which used to be such a boring job and often not very satisfactory. Life's sweet in the workshop thanks to my Tormek T-7.
St Marys, Tasmania, Australia
This is the best sharpening system I have ever used.
Very impressed with the Tormek T-7, the build quality of the machine and jigs are of top quality. I would not hesitate to recommend this product to any professional who would be sharpening tools on a regular basis.
Love this machine, I thought my tools were sharp before, not even close. Since I purchased the T-7 all my tools are razor sharp and a pleasure to work with.
